STQI Downtown Toronto School
Your Journey to a Strong Mind and Body
Master Dao will be conducting a free worldwide meditation workshop on February 6, Monday, from 7pm to 9pm EST (4pm to 6pm PST). Join us in person at our downtown Toronto school location, or join us virtually through Zoom from anywhere in the world!
The topic for this session is 'How to Overcome Regret'.
Have you ever strongly felt that you made some poor choices, said something, or did something, that you wish you did not? Every time you are faced with a similar situation, you feel regret and suffer internally. In this session, we will explore the idea of regret, to better understand and accept the choices we have made, so that we can move forward peacefully. Always free! Available in-person or virtually on Zoom.
In the last session, Master Dao spoke about 'Boosting Your Self Esteem' and understanding how to apply this idea for peacefulness. A blog has been written about it and you can view it here: How to Boost Your Self-Esteem.
You can also view past meditation workshop topics and learn about Shaolin Chán in general here: Shaolin Chan-Dao Knowledge Base.
We keep a tally of all the votes and they will accumulate for the next meditation workshop. So be sure to cast your vote when you register!
This is an opportunity for you to learn about and experience meditation and Chan/Zen/Dao philosophy. Master Dao will make it easy for you to learn and practice ancient Shaolin meditation techniques, and to apply his wisdom of Shaolin Chan-Dao to deal with modern day issues and challenges.
Indeed one can find plenty of information about meditation online. So much so that there is often conflict in meaning, leading to confusion about the practice, its origins, and the long-term goals of practice. Some people meditate because they are seeking peace. Some are seeking spiritual or religious connection. Why might you be interested?
Come learn and open yourself to a modern interpretation of what meditation means in 2022 and how it can really benefit you and the people around you.
